The 2018 NSW / ACT / QLD Interschools Multiclass Championships will be held on Saturday August 25 at Thredbo as part of the NSW State Interschools Championships. The event is being run in conjunction with Disabled Wintersport Australia (DWA). The event is an Alpine and Snowboard GS event for students with a disability in NSW, ACT and QLD.
Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a two day DWA training camp at Thredbo leading up to the event on August 23 & 24. The camp is free of charge (with DWA membership) and involves 2 x 2 hour coaching sessions each day with DWA’s volunteer adaptive snowsport guides. It is a basic introduction to racing to help students understand the racing process and to become more comfortable in a race course.
Students compete for their school in their Interschools division (year at school).

- Division 2 Male & Female - Years 9 & 10
- Division 3 Male & Female - Years 7 & 8
